I just stumbled across an immature male YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield. There is a large blackbird flock working the area around the Apple Barrel store and pond. It appears to be in a large mixed flock of Grackles and Red-wings, but I only went through about 30 birds on the ground before a Cooper's Hawk flushed them. The flock is still here, right now scattered in treetops in the rain. This is a perfect time of year and location for rare blackbirds, so the flock should be closely scrutinized.
